ZTE send out launch invitations and attack Meizu in the process


zte attack meizu

It appears there is no love lost between ZTE and Meizu, as the global phone giant attack the Zhuhai based phone maker with launch invitations for their latest ZTE V5 model.

There is a rumour that the reason Meizu has hand to release a whole new range of slightly updated models with physical home buttons is due to a failed legal battle against ZTE. We’re still unsure is this is 100% accurate but it might go to explain why ZTE are now attacking Meizu with their launch invitations.

Recently, Meizu sent out invitations for the release of the Meizu m2 along with a retro Nokia 1110. It’s hard to understand the logic behind the gesture, but we stopped trying to make sense of Meizu marketing a long time ago.

Whatever Meizu were trying to get across though, ZTE what the image destroyed and have send their own invitations with a smashed Nokia 1100.

ZTE are obviously quite set on simply destroying the launch of the Meizu M2 and must believe that they have the device to do it in the latest ZTE V5 model.

As the Meizu m2 is a 599-699 Yuan phone, this could point to a similar price tag for the all alloy ZTE V5 we saw in leaked photos a few days back complete with rear fingerprint scanner. Just the use of alloy and a fingerprint scanner at such a low-price would be enough for must Chinese buyers to opt of ZTE over Meizu.

Whatever these messages mean, we will learn the full details of both new phones towards the end of the month.

    ZTE always keep attacking Meizu. They did before in India.

    ZTE is just making themselves look petty and outside of the Nubia line which is excellent, their phones haven’t exactly been the greatest. They should focus less on attack ads and more on their product line.

        I was hoping this style of marketing would never make it to Asia. Most companies used to be so afraid of losing face they would never stoop to this level.

        I work for a large multinational marketing firm and I have seen companies from the west try to use this style of marketing against local companies. It always backfired and they would come to us for damage control.

    V5 was a good phone, so I expect something with the same or better quality.
    Hopefully it won’t be elephone-bezelless and overpriced.

    But sadly now im very tentated to buy the axon pro due to design software and especially AUDIO 😛 dont care bout’ the Sp810 wont game that much

      The 810 overheats for more than just gaming. It overheats with anything that is processor intensive. Gaming is just the most popular. Editing photos and videos can be just as tasking on the processor and even some common everyday apps can cause it to overheat. I would seriously consider other phones and steer clear of that SoC or the 615.

        Well i was mostly tentated to buy the opo or the axon (or even lenovo’s ZUK) so really i
        hope that snap810 devices from q3 will perform better in heat department

          I wouldn’t count on it, you can only do so much for a horrible design of a SoC. They can underclock it but that will just kill the performance of it completely.

    ZTE may be po’d about the circular home button, but they really should be po’d at themselves for being unable to create something that works (in China) as well as Flyme.
